MC Mar/11 - Greens - Pandas Thanks

Shabby chic and vintage are not easy subjects for me, even though I love the look of them, but since there were a couple challenges that asked for it, I decided to give it a go...

The sentiment is from Quietfire Design. I love those pandas, from Local King Rubber, but I think this is the first time I've used them.

And this week over on Created By Hand the theme is Lucky or Green

The pin on top with the elephant is an altered item. I had these doll head pins from eons ago and never used them. Didn't really want to use it this time either, but then I said - how can I alter it - and that got me in to two challenges - one that uses pins and one that said alter something BIG GRIN.

Tags is something else I very rarely use. But since there were several challenges that asked for tags as well - figured I might as well make one. And with all these challenges I really like the end result.

Anyway if you want to see more details and descriptions etc, just click on card image. Enjoy.

So it fits for these challenges:
The Pink Elephant #94 Buttons, lace & ribbon
TSG Clear Stamps #96 Stamp on something other than CS (Polymer Clay, then baked)
Spoonful of Sugar #141 use a tag

Cuttlebug Challenge Use Pins
Flourishes #107 Green
Kort o Mania #35 Alter Something (the pin)
Tuesday Throwdown #38 use a tag
Belli Challenge #112 use an animal

Well, now, this turned out just great! I like all your little additions. I'm not much of a tag gal, myself. If I made them I'd probably use them, though.
